So over the past 3 years I have been using my BOOMBOTIX speakers for everything I do when I am on the go. I have literally beat them to hell and back as you can see by the pictures of the BOOMBOTS I posted. This small company from San Francisco has really come a long way in such a short time. I have still not to this day found any portable speaker on the market that can deliver as much sound as this small devices deliver and can still take a beating. What also makes these speakers so special is that they can be literally mounted or clipped on to just about anything you can think of. Here is a little review input together of all three speaker models. The BOOMBOTIX BB1, BB2, and REX model speakers.
Here is the BOOMBOTIX BB1 speaker that I have had for a few years now. It has been dropped numerous times and has even fallen off my bike during a few group rides due to my drunkeness hahaha ! Even after all the abuse this speaker has yet to fail me. The sound on the BB1 is a bit louder than the BB2 BLUETOOTH MODEL but has a slightly longer battery life. If you listen to your music on high volume you will get at least 6 plus hours if play and with the volume dimmed a bit I have had it last at least a good 10-12 hours before a recharge. The charging only takes approximately an hour or less so down time is minimal. Overall this speaker is awesome but if you want to go wireless I would suggest the BB2 or REX MODEL.
The BOOMBOTIX BB2 bluetooth speaker is definitely worth the extra money if you want to go with a good wireless speaker. It has a good range of reception so it is not necessary to have the speaker next to you at all times. What made this speaker really special was that any device you connect to the audio input would also become Bluetooth compatible. So you could basically connect as many BB1 BOOMBOTS to it and control them from one device. This is awesome for me because I can connect my BB1 speaker to it and have an even louder rolling sound system. So for those of you that are thinking why doin need one of these when I have a perfectly good BOOMBOTIX BB1 well, think again ! Now it just gives you an excuse to have a even louder portable audio system at your fingertips whenever you have the urge to hear that favorite track you love.
The “REX” speaker is very similar to the BOOMBOTIX BB2 BLUETOOTH MODEL except for 6 major improvements. First, they have upgraded the speakers to give you a much louder, deeper, and overall increase in the loudness of the speaker which makes this the loudest of all the BOOMBOTIX SPEAKERS. Second, they have changed the design of the casing which did two things. One, you can interchange every component on the speaker to customize the color scheme to your liking and second by have a hexagon shape I find it easier to prop the speaker on top of just about anything. The third major change is the on screen battery display that shows you however battery life your speaker has left.
The forth major change I saw was the start up of the “REX” speaker. It literally says “BOOMBOT” and has a coin noise similar to a old Mario game. I thought that was really cool. The fifth change I saw was the a improved range of play you get from the speaker. I can walk almost twice as far away from it compared to the BOOMBOTIX BB2 BLUETOOTH MODEL and not have any problems with playback. Now the final and most important change in my opinion was the fact that you can also answer your phone threw this device. So even if your not using it for music you can definitely find good use in it as a Bluetooth speaker phone in your car or on the go. Plus there is now a input and output auxiliary jack making it capable of housing a additional microphone. So ultimately I would suggest this speaker to anyone who is looking for a loud and durable portable speaker or Bluetooth speaker phone. It’s definitely a affordable speaker that will guaranty you with a one year NO MATTER WHAT WARRANTY. Try and find any other company that will give you a warranty like that. Plus I have personally met the owner and designers behind these awesome products and if you like to support good people then this is definitely a good company to support.
I will fill you all in with how the new “Rex” speaker holds up. Today will be a great day to have it at PARK JAM !!!
